Convenience flags added for users running Casper jobs

July 27, 2021

CISL has added two new convenience flags to simplify how users request resources for running interactive jobs on Casper nodes. The new flags are:

  • --gpu=[type] to specify the gpu_type resource
  • --cpu=[type] to specify the cpu_type resource

The GPU resources to specify can be either gp100 or v100. CPU resources available include skylake and cascadelake. See Starting Casper jobs with PBS for details.
